Back-to-School Babysitting

School is starting up again all across the country. As schedules resume and we fall back into our school year routines, access to childcare becomes very important.

Thankfully, the start of school is a great time to reevaluate your babysitting needs and create a solution that works for your family. If you have been toying with the idea of starting a babysitting coop, there is no better time to do it. Get to know the other families in your child’s class by swapping free babysitting with them. It’ll be fun for the kids (who want play dates with their friends anyway) and it’s a great way for you to get to know the other parents. Not sure if a coop already exists near you? Search our coop directory to find out.

Looking for a paid sitter instead? We’ve got you covered. Fall is when college students return to campus. Many college students look to babysitting as a way to earn extra money during the semester. Chances are, if there’s a college near you, there are lots of great SittingAround babysitters, too. Search for a babysitter with confidence. We provide access to background checks, identity verification, ratings, and more.

Will you be hiring a new sitter this fall or participating in a babysitting coop?
